Wayward Compass is a Charm in Hollow Knight. It shows the location of the Knight on the Map.


The Knight's map pin

This Charm is useful for exploration and is good during a first playthrough. It is recommended to switch to something more combat-oriented when preparing for a boss battle.

Once a keen knowledge of the map's layout is attained, this Charm is no longer worthwhile.

How to Acquire

Bought from Iselda in Dirtmouth for  220 after the first encounter with Cornifer.

  • Shop description:
Highly recommended! If you're having trouble finding your way in the maze of ruins below us, try this charm.
It will pinpoint your location on the map. Incredibly helpful for finding your bearings in unfamiliar locations!


Deep dive


  • The location of the Knight is shown even when no map of the area has been bought.
  • When the Knight is in the passageway between the City of Tears and the Godmaster content Junk Pit, Wayward Compass shows them as being below Dirtmouth on the Map.
